When I started blogging I never really thought about affiliate marketing or anything of that nature in general. But recently I decided what the heck its worth a shot. Well now that I have been looking into it I seem to have figured out how hectic it can be to really start blogging full-time and the stress that it brings when you don’t really know what you are doing. That is why I have now turned to YouTube and Pintrest. Both sites have been amazing at explaining the ins and outs of affiliate marketing and so much more.
Never did I think I would be trying to blog full-time anyway. I kind of started it as a hobby years back and really didn’t take it serious until recently. Ever since I got back into writing I have become more involved with my Pintrest account. It has been a blast going through Pintrest anyway. It truly is addicting and there is everything and anything you could possibly imagine on that site. I don’t see how you could run out of ideas when searching that site. If you are interested in getting started on a blog and need help with affiliate marketing feel free to contact me, check out my pintrest board, or check out my website also.
Today I got a lot of one on one with my kids. It was nice considering I normally seem to be caught up with so much unnecessary stuff throughout the day. To be honest I just get busy and forget how important it is to spend time with the kids. Our children need attention, it is important to give them that. It helps there imaginative play, their social skills, and overall mental health. Kids thrive on having their parents attention. Me and my daughter got to play with her barbies, it was quite fun to go back in time and pretend to be a kid again. With my boys it was war, playing with army men.
As an adult I feel like all I do is stress and dwell on the negative but when my kids play with me or vice versa I actually feel much better. I am able to actually be myself and enjoy some quality time with my kids. Also I have really gotten to love the outside time with them also, especially with the water guns. My boys are very sneaky and have gotten me good many times this summer.
I think taking a time out and taking a break from adulthood is good. It helps me take a breather and feel refreshed. My kids are happy and truly enjoy the time as well. Just seeing their face when I am there spending time with them brightens my day. I encourage all parents to try it, take some time to just sit down and spend some quality time with their little ones. You might actually find it to be an amazing experience an a chance to make unforgettable memories.
There are a lot of amazing titles available on Netflix, both for children and adults. I am going to be focusing on the movies for children today. Recently I have been trying to find some great movies for my kids to watch, ones that are appropriate and meant for children to enjoy. Netflix has been coming out some amazing movies and shows focused just for kids.
Hotel Transylvania Series
Captain Underpants Series
How to Train a Dragon Series
Those are just a small list of great movie/series ideas for your kiddos. We love them and have found them to be quite funny. They all make great movie night selections.
Having movie nights with your little ones are a great way to spend some quality time together and bond. My kids love it and usually take turns when it comes to deciding who is going to be deciding on the movie title for that night. Keep in mind there are a lot of different titles available along with educational ones also. Take time to browse, check around for suggestions, and have fun trying new movies out.
You know as a parent privacy is hard to come by. It is so true. To be honest in my opinion I feel like when I make a phone call that is the time you will see my children show their true crazy nature. It brings the maniac out of my kids! Getting on the phone especially if it is an important phone call my kids go bananas. It’s “Mommy I need this.” “Mommy I want to talk.” and so on. Then I will have some of them even try to climb me as I am on the phone. Yep my kids are definitely the attention speaking type.
Getting on another point I have noticed that the same behavior comes out when we have visitors. They can’t just sit quietly or play calmly, nope, that would be too easy. It’s like they have this initial embedded beacon that goes off when mommy is doing something or visiting with someone. It is quite humorous in a way.
Parenthood is definitely funny, there are days that I feel like I am in a comedy show. Kids do funny things especially when they have an audience. There are times I wish that I could catch some of the stuff they do on camera, I would be famous. Just kidding. But it is true, kids are funny. When I get overwhelmed I just have to think of the funny crazy moments and remember they are just being kids. As an adult I feel like I have forgotten the true nature of being a kid. When I sit down and spend time with my kiddos I get a taste of how I felt in my childhood and it helps me relate to them better. So spend time with your kids. Laugh together. Make unforgettable memories. Live life to the fullest.
Today I ran across one of the funniest life hacks hat had me on the floor laughing. The image it gave me of when I was a teenager was priceless! To be honest an image of teenagers today going through phone withdrawals is just overbearingly hilarious. The life hack quotes this:
“When punishing your kids, don’t take away their electronics. Just take their charger and watch the fear in their eyes as they use it less and less while the battery slowly dies.”
It was just to pass up to now share!!! As a parent I have learned it is best to have an open mind and a great sense of humor!!!!
My brother Michael sent me a beautiful video that was put together by him of our Grandaddy. He passed away back in September of 2015, that is when I really cut back on my writing also.
This video shows just a fragment of the service he did for the Lord. Giving Bibles to churches and all over Bulgaria. Risking his life while working for the Lord so others could know about Jesus. We need to have that dedication, that motivation to drop everything and put Him first!
Thank you again Michael for the beautiful video!
